Bible quizzing is a ministry of the Free Methodist Church that combines Bible study and Christian competition for youth in grades 6-12. The purpose is to establish youth in their faith through the systematic study, application, and memorization of the Word of God. At weekly practices, coaches strive to balance the three main components of quizzing: learning and applying the Bible, having fun and fellowship, and practicing to compete with other churches. Teams of three teens quiz against teams from other churches at monthly conference or regional tournaments by jumping off electronic chairs to earn the opportunity to answer questions about a certain book of the Bible. Each year selected books of the New Testament (NIV) are studied throughout the school year, and the season culminates with National Bible Quiz Finals held at a Free Methodist college.
